Tatiana Howard (US-16) is well known as a Hookipa Local (both Windsurfing and Surfing). And she is also known for her efforts to motivate girls to get on the water and have fun sailing.
She, together with Juliana Farias (BRA-124), started last year the “Butterfly Effect” project in Maui. It is a project for girls, to get together and go windsurfing, having fun and sharing their knowledge about the sport. Windsurfing is quite a male sport, so it is great to see all the girls taking over the spots.
Taty is at the moment traveling around New Zealand and going to Oz in the next days. So together with the Canterbury Windsports Association, Groundswell surf shop, Naish, Da Kine, Wings Hawaii, Wind & Kite Magazine and a lot of other people that helped out, she made a stop at the Lake Clearwater to meet all the windsurfer girls (almost 20) from the area, to keep the Butterfly Effect rolling.
